Doves Funeral Directors was founded in the 1980s by second-generation Funeral Director Sean Costello, with our first premises in Bromley. Indeed, many of us are continuing a family history of funeral directing, aware of the responsibility it carries.
Doves quickly established an enviable local reputation and Sean expanded the business across Kent, with the first new branch here at Station Road in Swanley.
Today, Doves continues in fine form, with a friendly team dedicated to Sean’s original values of providing the highest standard of personal and respectful service. Our experienced teams in Ashford, Larkfield, Maidstone, Orpington, Sevenoaks, Sittingbourne, Staplehurst and Swanley serve families right across the county.
All of our families receive dedicated service and support from our teams 24 hours a day, helping to take away some of the stress of planning a funeral.
Doves Funeral Directors is a member of the National Association of Funeral Directors and our highly qualified teams have completed an extensive training programme to provide the best possible service they can.
The teams at our branches across Kent will provide advice on every stage of the funeral planning process, and will arrange an individual and unique funeral to help you to celebrate the life of your loved one.
We have a variety of funeral options, with transparent pricing, to meet the needs of every family and faith and our branches have modern facilities, equipment and private Chapels of Rest allowing all of the teams at Doves Funeral Directors to provide the very best care for someone who has died.
For those who wish to secure today’s funeral prices, Doves Funeral Directors also offers a simple and affordable prepaid funeral plan, Choice.
If you would like to discuss planning a funeral, or our Choice plan, we can meet you at your local branch or you can arrange a home visit. The teams at Doves Funeral Directors are always at the end of the phone, so if you need anything please don’t hesitate to call your local branch today.
